Tamar Braxton got her scalp peeled back when she complained that she was “too drained” and “too tired” to attend the funeral of her niece, Lauren Braxton, who died suddenly from a heart condition at age 24 on April 29, 2019.

The youngest of the Braxton siblings at 42, Braxton filmed herself on Instagram Live while in Chicago at the beginning of the Dungeon Tour with fellow singer and reality star Kandi Burruss. Suffering from a headache, Braxton seemed to ramble through a few subjects while telling her fans that she is over the tragic death of her niece and the incessant bickering with her family members.

Yet, Braxton asked her fans more than once to watch the “Braxton Family Values,” but said she is not going to view the popular WeTV show because of all the drama.
